New stem cell donors for DKMS

In this hectic world, which seems to be characterised only by crises, some employees wanted to set an example of hope and charity. When a family member of an employee was diagnosed with cancer, we came up with the idea of activating new donors for DKMS within our company.

According to DKMS*, “every 12 minutes in Germany someone receives the devastating diagnosis of blood cancer, worldwide every 27 seconds. Blood cancer is still the most common cause of cancer-related deaths in children. Many patients cannot survive without a life-saving stem cell donation, and the search for suitable donors is always a race against time. The faster a ‘match’ is found, the greater the patient’s chances of survival.”

No sooner said than done, and thanks to the excellent support of the DKMS Donor Centre gGmbH donor service, a campaign was launched in no time at all. We covered the costs of the campaign as a company and are delighted that some employees were able to register as new potential stem cell donors.

Introduction of 3G Control

Due to the current Corona development, we are supplementing our hygiene measures in line with the amended legislation. As of 24 Nov 2021 also visitors need to comply with 3G regulations. Access to warehouse and office areas will only be possible if proof of recovery, a complete vaccination or a daily rapid test or PCR test is available. The rapid test may be a maximum of 24 hours old, the PCR test a maximum of 48 hours old. Due to the new legal situation, we are also obliged to document the controls. Truck drivers are often unable to show a valid negative covid test result. We have provided for a restricted access to goods-in and goods-out areas as far as possible, so that documents can be exchanged while observing hygiene rules (esp. keeping distance and wearing mouth/nose protection). We kindly ask for your understanding and hope for your support for these measure
